What is APAture?
Kearny Street Workshop's APAture is an annual multidisciplinary arts festival presenting the work of emerging Asian Pacific American artists, ages 18 to 35, living and/or working in the San Francisco Bay Area. APAture's mission is to provide young artists with an early experience presenting their work at a large event; to build audiences for young, emerging artists; to strengthen the sense of community among our young artists; and to raise awareness of the existence of and diversity within the APA arts community. APAture values community-building, ethnic and artistic diversity, and collaboration across ethnic and disciplinary lines.

Now in its fifth year, APAture includes a visual arts show, film screenings, workshops, a panel discussion, literary readings, performances in spoken word, music, dance, theater, and other performance genres, and an area for zinesters and comic artists to display and sell their work. The last day of APAture is a twelve-hour event that attracts over 600 people--last year over 700 people attended the final day of APAture, and over 1300 total turned out over the course of the festival. APAture generally lasts for two weeks, with the visual show opening one week before the rest of the festival's events.

Each year APAture also features a select group of artists who exemplify the work being done in their discipline.

APAture is curated and produced by KSW-Next, the next-generation component of Kearny Street Workshop.
